Experienced Fort Myers Personal Injury Lawyers
Personal injuries are just that. Personal. They can affect every aspect of your life, from the time you wake up to the time you go to sleep, and sometimes even during sleep itself. Unexpected accidents do more than just cause pain. They have an ongoing emotional and experiential impact that can seriously compromise your quality of life for years to come.
At Viles & Beckman, LLC we understand just how far-reaching the effects of a personal injury can be. It is our belief that victims ought to be compensated for the whole span of those damages, often going well beyond the physical injuries themselves. Our job is to make a compelling case for that compensation and to pursue it with aggressive passion and a command of the law.
In the context of Florida law, the term personal injury refers to any damage that you or your loved one experiences as a result of someone else’s negligence.
Negligence refers to another party’s failure to behave reasonably, act carefully, or follow the law.
You might be surprised to learn that even true accidents can constitute negligence. In fact, most negligent people never intend to cause anyone harm. But their careless actions have real consequences, and the law holds careless people accountable for those consequences. More often than not, that means they are responsible for assuming the financial costs of your suffering and losses.
Ideally, negligent people would always agree to pay for the injuries they’ve caused — and their insurance companies would agree to abide by their policy terms as well as state and federal law. Too often, though, defendants and their insurers choose to put up a fight instead. They do everything they can to reduce their financial liability, including “lowballing” your damages and requiring you to take legal action before they even begin to consider a fair valuation of your claim.
As experienced Fort Myers personal injury lawyers, we know the lengths to which negligent people and their insurance companies are willing to go in order to deny you the justice you deserve. That’s why we are here — to stand up for you and insist that you be treated fairly.
Our attorneys are dedicated to fighting fiercely for every single penny that our clients are owed, reflecting the full scope of their suffering and the maximum recovery allowed under the law. Our goal is always to deliver as big a recovery for you as possible — and you don’t have to pay us anything unless we successfully settle your case or win.
Getting the Best Possible Recovery for Your Claim
As experienced Fort Myers personal injury lawyers, our mission is to get you the best conceivable financial recovery. While the specific damages we pursue will always depend on the facts and circumstances of your particular experience, the following list will give you an idea of the types of damages we seek in many of our cases:
- Diminished earning capacity
- Emotional distress and suffering
- Hospital bills
- Lost wages (time away from work)
- Medical expenses (past, present, and future)
- Physical pain
- Physical therapy
- Rehabilitation services
In the event of a wrongful death, we may also be able to seek compensation for the loss of the deceased person’s affection, companionship, financial support, and other forms of support.
Additionally, certain types of cases may provide victims with special damages or punitive damages, which are designed to punish the wrongdoer financially (above and beyond the cost of all the other damages in the case).
